Deep amber body with minimal head.

Deep boozy nose, with a hint of fruit.

Peachy taste with a bit of cherry aftertaste. Neither taste is overbearing, and impressive in spite of being difficult flavors.

Fine carbonation, relatively pronounced.

Pretty good, but the coriander is fighting with the fruit.

On tap at Hair of the Dog. Served in an HotD taster glass.

Appearance - Darker than Fred. Deep amber. No head. Looks flat... much like other Fred barrel treatments I've had.

Smell - Bourbon, cherry, and oak are most prominent. Pale malts. Earthy hops. A little bit of the original Fred back there, but it's a lot of barrel and fruit.

Taste - Cherry and bourbon again. The peach is faint, if nonexistent and I'm just imagining it since they told me it's Peach Fred. Maybe the Peach just cuts the intensity of the Cherry a bit. Pale malts are strong enough to make Fred come through all of this. Some apples and a slightly bitter finish that are more reminiscent of the base beer.

Mouthfeel - Pretty low in carbonation and rather hot. Not overly sweet like other barrel treatments from HotD. The weight and alcohol is expected for this size.

Overall - Really tasty. Not without the hurdles of a huge beer. Good fruit and the base beer stands up to all the craziness they've done to it.
